in threadbit.css


.threadlisthead span.threadinfo {
width: 49%;

add below

.threadlisthead span.threadinfo a {
color: colour you want.

Actually that should be in threadlist.css , correct?

and you would add the code like this:

.threadlisthead span.threadinfo a {
color: #ffffff;

And I have to do that for each on that bar separately - Replies, Views, Last Post By.

Now how about these 2 bars on forumdisplay.php shown in the image below. How do you change the colors for the font in them?

Show up what you tried and where you put it.

I tried what you put in here... I posted a request on the official Beta forum


Maybe that explains it a little better?

I feel like I've already looked that one up. Do a search in templates for ".postlist_popups a" and you will see what effects it. And then get the firebug addon for firefox for future use and you'll be able to easily find these things yourself.

I thought it was "thread_controls" inside the showthread.css

.thread_controls {
position: relative;
float: {vb:stylevar left};
width: 100%;
border: 1px solid #c4c4c4;
background: {vb:stylevar blockhead_background.backgroundColor} {vb:stylevar blockhead_background.backgroundImage} repeat-x top {vb:stylevar left};
margin-bottom: {vb:math {vb:stylevar padding}/2};
margin-top: {vb:stylevar padding};

.thread_controls div:first-child {
font-weight: bold;
padding: {vb:math {vb:stylevar padding}/2} 0;
font-size: {vb:math {vb:stylevar font.fontSize}-1}px;
border-top: 1px solid {vb:stylevar body_background.backgroundColor};

float: {vb:stylevar left};
width: 100%;

But I placed a color code in there, didn't change anything. UGH!

Ok I found it and changed it...

color: {vb:stylevar link_color};
color: #ffffff;

Doesn't make sense since it was supposed to pull the link_color stylevar, but it wasn't. Cause the Link_color stylevar was a blue color and not black.

Thanks Lynne once again. Can I register my own stylevar and have it point to it? I think I read somewhere you can.

Yes, you may. You must be in debug mode and then go to the StyleVar page in teh MASTER STYLE and you will have a new option to Add New Stylevar.
